BARBADIANS CAN LOOK forward to a dip in the price of milk by year-end as a result of the recent importation of heifers from overseas.

This is the assessment of president of the Barbados Beef and Dairy Producers Association, Brian Allan, following the arrival of 194 cows from Pennsylvania, United States, last Friday.

Allan told the DAILY NATION that the Barbados Agricultural Society (BAS) imported the cows to work with the dairy subsidy outlined by Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler in his Budgetary Proposals in June 2015.

“This project was supposed to be in coordination with the cess programme that was passed through Parliament last year,” he said. (SB)
